After many years, here comes the Zurich Hallenstation 1977 live soundboard/audience matrix second version mixed by Digital Brother Paolo.
I always felt that the pure soundboard recording of this show lacked emotion with the audience hardly audible in the recording and sounding more like a flat studio recording. What is the point of a live album if you don’t hear the magic in the air: the interaction with the crowd and the ambiance of the venue where you can feel the power and thrust coming from the PA system? This vibe is essential for any live recording and in fact all sound engineers today would record a concert including some percentage of audience into the mix. This particular matrix has the advantage of having undoubtedly the best quality audience capture from the Wind & Wuthering tour where the taper used high-end recording equipment and tape support. This was not done using an ordinary cassette and tape recorder but rather a portable professional Uher reel -to-reel unit coupled with two Sennheiser mics. The taper had explained that he had to dismantle the unit in smaller parts in order to pass security at the gate and re-assemble it once inside. The soundboard had a gap of more then 3 minutes during the The Carpet Crawlers which was masterfully patched with the audience recording to the point that the transition from soundboard to audience is hardly noticeable. This new matrix uses today’s new digital technology and brings a fresh breath of air into an already spectacular sounding live recording. Enjoy!

Even as much as this show is my go-to W&W show, surpassing Seconds Out in MANY ways, I can't believe I hadn't grabbed this version yet.
Simply put, this version takes the already superb "Zurich Revisited" and takes it into the stratosphere. The sound quality is amazing, and the small nits (mostly phasing) that existed in the previous version seem to have melted away. The audience sounds, especially in things like the clapping along in FoF, makes the experience transcendent.
Without a doubt the best remaster I've ever come across, here or elsewhere. My thanks to the DB team and all those who added their gifts to the effort. [roberthking3]
